sewing and other fabulous adventures

Flamingo in the garden.  This is my fabulous birthday flamingo from Jim…think he’s made of old car parts…he watches over Oliver’s fairy garden. July 6th 2013

Jazmin’s bright red lilies. July 6th 2013

Judi’s Cat Box Barter Quilt belly button all sewed and waiting for the border fabric to come in the mail…too cute! July 6th 2013

Mom’s holiday cat box quilt up on the design wall waiting for some sewing machine attention…this one has all but one of the same fabrics as the Judi quilt tried to put this one in a different order so they both look different in the long run. July 6th 2013

Robyn and Neener’s heart WIP (work in Progress) this heart will be one of 20 eventually…don’t know Chocolate and mint make me think of Robyn and her son Neal – Neener.  This heart will join the others in the ‘Those who Dwell in my Heart’ quilt. Worked diligently throughout the day and got it this far.  Tomorrow will work on locating my embroidery hoops (I hope I didn’t get rid of them in the move) and embroidery their names in chocolate colored floss, add some minty ribbons and get started on the 2nd to the last heart…perhaps I’ll get this done this year! Or at least all the blocks…have a perfect place on the wall for it.  The pattern for this fabulous block is free at:http://www.paperpanache.com/free/guestpats/aheart.htm July 7th 2013

500 cat box quilt Judi WIP 7-4-13

OMG I was 2 cat fabrics short…can you believe I miscounted…I’m shocked too…thankfully I had hot pink with kitty foot prints and Hello Kitty Halloweenie fabrics to fill in the blanks…just to make it exciting the entire design wall fell off the wall onto me…not a square moved…good thing I had some massive diaper pins to hang it back on it’s hooks…don’t care what anyone says…QUILTING IS WICKED EXCITING!  OK so here are the 49 different cat fabrics in all their glory patiently waiting for me to cool off a bit on this toasty 4th of July then I can start stitching them together and contemplate the borders! eventually I’ll be hand quilting a kitty foot print in the center of each square…neato!
